SolarEdge Technologies opened a new production line for North America at the Flextronics factory in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada.
May 2, 2011 – BUSINESS WIRE — SolarEdge Technologies Inc., provider of end-to-end distributed solar power harvesting and PV monitoring solutions, opened a new production line for North America at the Flextronics factory in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. Local production of SolarEdge inverters complies with Ontario’s Domestic Content requirement and therefore enables installers to benefit from the Ontario microFiT and feed-in-tariff (FiT) programs.
This is not Flextronics’ first foray into solar photovoltaics (PV) production, as it recently opened a new solar panel manufacturing facility in California.
The SolarEdge inverters are part of the company’s power optimization system, which includes PV power optimizers and module-level monitoring. SolarEdge systems offer an up to 25% increase in energy yield, module-level monitoring for high-resolution remote diagnostics, and safer installation and maintenance than traditional inverters, the company says.
The production in Ontario, an extension of SolarEdge’s partnership with Flextronics, enables SolarEdge customers investing in private and commercial installations to meet the domestic content level required by the Ontario Power Authority FiT program. The Ontario facility will supply SolarEdge products to the North American market.
John Berdner, SolarEdge’s GM for North America, states that the production supports Ontario’s Green Energy Act for promoting renewable energy and creates highly skilled green jobs.
SolarEdge will exhibit at Solar Ontario 2011, booth 216, on May 5-6 at Windsor, Ontario. Join the SolarEdge Ontario workshop to learn how to design PV systems using distributed MPPT solutions, with special emphasis on low temperature performance and module monitoring capabilities.
